LCC announces Robert Pyle will be featured author


October 11, 2018

Lower Columbia College has announced that Robert Michael Pyle will be featured at the October 24 Northwest Voices event in Longview. First, the author will conduct a writing workshop from 3:30-5:00 p.m., in Main 146 on the Lower Columbia College campus. From 7-8:00 p.m., he will hold a reading at the Longview Public Library. Both events are free and open to the public.

Robert Michael Pyle grew up and learned his butterflies in Colorado, where he fell in love with the Magdalena Alpine and its high-country habitat. He took his Ph.D. in butterfly ecology at Yale University, worked as a conservation biologist in Papua New Guinea, Oregon, and Cambridge, and has written full-time for many years. His 22 books include Wintergreen (John Burroughs Medal), Where Bigfoot Walks (Guggenheim Fellowship), and Sky Time in Gray’s River (National Outdoor Book Award). He lives in rural southwest Washington and still studies butterflies.
